best way to block eyebrows out that i got taught is to use theatrical wax - put a thin layer of wax over the eyebrows to cover them, then use barrier spray to lock the wax in and then foundation/powder over them.

hope this helps!

Soap - a block of normal white soap left in warm water til it goes slightly soft. Scrape some off and smooth over the brows. Dry with a hairdryer on a cool setting.

Can be easier to work with than wax and easier to remove as well.

I always use theatrical wax, ive found that the soap method can be a bit fiddly and not always as perfect as using the wax...just make sure you set it fully before using foundation.
*hats off  to Linds for being able to fiddle and work the soap method*

Ha ha, thanks - I got in such a mess using Gafquat and can't get the finish as smooth in wax as I can with soap!

I am being really silly today but..... why would you need to block your eyebrows out?

haha its not for me... its for a friend of mine... a guy doing a anime school girl shoot... I made the costume and am trying to branch out into hair and makeup but think I'm not so sure about some things...

I don't really have eyebrows so I can't practice on myself
